Azalea Children’s Tea Party 2017

We had the pleasure of being asked to assist with this year’s Tea Party. I had a team face painting for the VIP’s as well as I was there taking photos with the Belles and Fairies for guests. Those pictures are up and ready for purchase with 50% of the proceeds going back to the Cape Fear Volunteer Center to help aide their goals. Thank you so much and please feel free to contact me with any questions. You can find the album here


The Azalea Children’s Tea was truly an enchanted experience. With the theme changing each year, it is like stepping into a different fairy tale every time. In attendance at this event was the Cape Fear Garden Club Azalea Belles, Azalea Festival Princess and her Court, as well as pageant queens and princesses. Proceeds benefit the operations of the Cape Fear Volunteer Center whose mission is to: Build and maintain an organization capable of meeting the needs of the non-profit community. We provide trained volunteers, resources and processes that stimulate effective solutions for the New Hanover County Area. Some of our programs include: Big Buddy, Kids Voting, Port City Social Club.

Here is some information about the Cape Fear Volunteer Center….

Our Mission and Our History

Our mission at Cape Fear Volunteer Center is to match volunteers service opportunities in the Cape Fear region, through direct and indirect services: Big Buddy/Life Guide, National Days of Service, Kid’s Voting, and CareNet.

Cape Fear Volunteer Center was modeled after the famous “1000 Points of Light” speech by President George Bush, harnessing the power of spontaneous volunteers and matching them with community needs.

In 2005, after prayers and confirmation from God, Annie Anthony took a small program and transformed it into a nonprofit agency. Armed with the idea of keeping her hands open to what God might desire to do through this organization, the agency has continued to flourish into what it is today.

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

Our center has been around now for about 12 years. Funds are still needed in many ways to keep the center functioning for 12 more years. Everything from administrative supplies, materials for projects, to procuring venues for events. Donations of any size are welcome. Most are even tax deductible!

If you wish to drop off donations, please call 910.392.8180.
